And in true fashion, IDIOTS are trying to selll their games for $16,800!! LMFAO!!!
Are we really to believe that only 2 or 3 of us just want our money/product while the other (what, 200 people) are chanting "DP!, DP!" while we are staring at losing $8500+ of our hard earned cash because we just want DP to pull out of this to "continue producing machines years in the future"? I don't think many of us believe this is probable at this point.
Well I feel that DP needs to do this on their own dime, not ours. The fact that they can't tells me that this is going to be a lose/lose going forward from here.
This dispute started what, 9 months ago.. and there is ZERO progress from that point.
Probably the most disheartening thing is that DP is only out for themselves, not for the people they took their money from. This is about the FUTURE for them, and not about RIGHT NOW for us.
Quoted from Pinhead1982:
The private thread was set up and I think it is a good idea. It has kept all the bull-shit out, look at the last 15 posts... anything productive, factual been said. Nope, just people giving their opinions, which if they are welcome to do, but I
as an TBL buyer don’t want to have to scroll through all these posts to find there is not 1 FACTUAL thing!
You say about more people getting ripped off. Like who? DP Stopped taking money/ depsosits after this happened. Who else a DP trying to rip off?! No one.. And they have gone on to try and get people their games.
As said another manufacturer was lined up and TBL was ready to go back to into production to get people their games..
It really does surprise me how people overlook this..
Did JPoP do this.. nope, did Heighway do this- the Pinball Bros.. nope.. they just fucked people over..
Jaap was at the Texas Pinball Festival just a year and a half ago and he was pushing the BOP 25th and giving a presentation on the status of TBL... no doubt that the entire trip was paid for out of the pockets of those that had paid for the 200 TBL machines (if not, who?). They were still arrogant enough to be blowing others people money to take all-expense paid trips to conventions that late in the game.
Who are they trying to rip off now? Anyone that would be stupid enough to give them money.. which is no one at this point.
Can Chicago Gaming pick up this license and make it? Serious question. Seems like it would sell well. I'd buy 2.
